Music, Associate in Arts:  Academic Catalog

The Associate in Arts in Music degree is designed to develop a strong base of knowledge and skills within the discipline that will serve as a foundation for further study. Students majoring in music complete a series of university-transferable courses in the areas of musicianship, music theory, individual performance, and ensemble performance.

Fundamental to the study of music is the performance of music. Upon entering the program, the student declares a primary performance medium (instrument or voice) and is assigned an applied instructor with whom the student meets regularly throughout the program. Students also demonstrate fundamental keyboarding skills by passing a piano proficiency examination or completing appropriate coursework. In addition to individual performance, ensemble performance is fundamental for the developing musician. The department offers numerous performing ensembles that serve to provide opportunities for majors and non-majors alike.
